Awesome Energy Lifehacks #2: Snacking Right

The right snacks can help to give you a huge energy boost, making it possible for you to stay away throughout even the most exhausting day! Snacks are meant to give you energy between meals, and it's actually recommended that you eat smaller meals in order to eat larger snacks. Here's the best snack to eat for an energy boost:
  • Quick-acting carbs (fruit, dried fruit, honey)
  • Slow-acting carbs (oats, whole grains, veggies)
  • Lean protein (chicken, turkey, milk)
  • Healthy fats (yoghurt, olive oil, avocadoes)
Yes, you want to combine ALL of these things into a single snack for maximum energy boost!

It will take longer to digest the slow-acting carbs and healthy fat, giving you a steady energy burn for hours to come. Finally, the protein will fuel your muscles and organs, acting as a pick-me-up! You can do snacks like:
  • Peanut butter/banana sandwich
  • Yoghurt with granola
  • Turkey ham on whole wheat toast
Talk about a tasty energy boost!
